Can you believe we’re already halfway through 2017? It seems like just yesterday we were building our first high tunnel and hiring our first Farm Associates, but we’ve come a long way with nine operating high tunnels and seven dedicated farm staff!
As we continue to progress, we’re thrilled to share that Quicken Loans awarded RecoveryPark $50,000 for our pitch in Quicken Loans’ Demo Days. Thanks to all of our supporters, we were generously awarded much-needed office equipment from Michigan Office Solutions’ “Make My Nonprofit Run Better” contest.
We’ve brought on five more Farm Associates over the last month, and they’re doing a phenomenal job harvesting our first round of specialty produce from our very own RecoveryPark Farms.
The pictures below show some examples of how restaurants are creatively utilizing our produce in some of Detroit’s finest dining establishments.
